Sun Yee On triad faction leader Lee Tai-lung, murdered outside a five-star hotel two weeks ago, was buried yesterday after a funeral service that police watched closely. The service for Lee, 41, was held at the Universal Funeral Parlour in Hung Hom, and attended by more than 100 relatives and mourners. Two dozen police, including triad experts, were stationed outside. It followed a four-hour vigil the previous night at which more than 1,000 people paid their respects under the gaze of more than 100 police. An officer said the service was monitored to see whether any illegal triad rites were performed. Lee was hacked to death on August 4 after getting out of his Mercedes-Benz, which had been rammed by a car outside the Kowloon Shangri-la Hotel. About 30 mourners, all in black suits, left the funeral parlour as the coffin was carried to a waiting hearse. They raised their jackets apparently to prevent photographers from taking pictures of family members. About 100 people then boarded three coaches that followed the hearse to the Chai Wan cemetery on Hong Kong Island. During Wednesday night's vigil from 6pm to 10pm, police checked mourners' identities before allowing them into the parlour. Police said a feud with the Wo Shing Wo triad society had been identified as the motive behind the killing. No one has been arrested.
